Understandably, with the lack of actual football being played right now, media attention has turned to transfer stories.
There have been several rumours linking Manchester United with different players, but the one we’ve covered most is a proposed Red Devils move for Jack Grealish.
Today, we’ve been given the clearest indication yet that this deal is moving in the right direction. The scoop comes from Eurosport France journalist, Manu Lonjon.
Earlier today, he tweeted that United are ‘finalising the arrival’ of the superstar 24-year-old attacker, who currently earns £35,000-a-week at Aston Villa.
Grealish had been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons at the start of the lockdown, though it seems as if this hasn’t put off Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaching staff.
I love Grealish, I think he’s an absolutely wonderful player who can do pretty much anything with a football at his feet. What I like most is he has that arrogance, confidence and swagger which is required to go right to the top.
Yes, sometimes the barrier is crossed, but it’s a trait that all the absolute greats of this game have…
In terms of transfer fee, United could be helped out if Villa are relegated at the end of this season. Even if they’re not, would he really command a fee of over £60million? I’m not sure…
